An Anniversary and Birthday!



Today is my 6 year anniversary of blogging and my nephew, Joel's birthday! Happy Birthday, Joel.

Thank you, everyone, for all the prayers and healing thoughts for my husband, Howard. He is doing very well, getting ready for his 2nd round of chemo starting Monday morning. This time they will be trying it on an out-patient basis. He will have to go up to Overland Park every morning to get his infusion cassette changed. I think our van could find it's way to the Cancer Center without help!

Love the acorn candle holders! It looks so fall-ish! It's been in the mid 80's here....no fall in the air yet!
love you,

Oh Marigene...I had no idea you guys were dealing with all this! I'm so sorry & pray that your hubby will make a complete recovery. Keeping you in my prayers as well, because I know how stressful it is on the caregiver, too.

Six years - impressive. Good thoughts for you and your hubby - things are hard, I know, hang in there - we all have your back. Just remember, when you feel down there is always someone in blogland thinking of you - we'll take turns so you are never alone.

Hope the trip to Overland Park isn't long - I remember Overland Park from when we lived in Olathe, lo those many millions of years ago. I'm sure it has changed a lot in that area since 1979 - wow, that long ago?!?!

Your table is just delightful!!! I'm always happy when I see you blog pop up with a new post. Love the header too.
